The Good: Attention to detail - extruded head tube, metal cable tie downs, wonderfully machined parts, internal cable routing, everything on this bike is well designed and thought out, adjustable geometry, single pivot simplicity, stable, lateral rigidity, fast, surprisingly nimble despite the weight, well suited for any type of DH riding
The Bad: Hmmmmm, could be a bit lighter
I ride a variety of downhill trails here in New England. Everything from flowy berms and jumps to rocky, steep technical trails. The 303 RDH is able to handle anything with ease. It has a short wheelbase and a nice slack feel which makes it ideal for railing turns and pinning it through technical sections. The rail system makes for a simple, consistent suspension action that is predictable every time. I also appreciate how well this bike is built. I see a lot of high-dollar bikes made with cheap materials, but not this one. Its nice to see some craftsmanship and attention to detail on this Yeti.
